Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A neutron irradiation facility which is suitable for neutron dosimetry studies has been constructed from a 10 curie Pu-Be source shielded by polytene, boron and lead mixtures. This type of installation supplies collimated beams of fast neutrons with a negligible γ-ray content. An experimental assessment is made of the beam profile on leaving the collimator and of the contribution from scattered and leakage neutrons to the spectrum.
